MFT Stamps | December Release Countdown – Five Days and Counting!

December 3, 2020

Hello friends! We’re kicking off the December Release Countdown from My Favorite Things with a fun new stamp set illustrated by Birdie Brown! I made two cards to share with you today featuring some of the images from the I’ll Love You Forever Stamp Set.

For my first card, I stamped my image onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored my images with Cool Gray Copic Markers (C00, C0, C2, C4, C6). I then fussy cut my image out and diecut a frame from white cardstock using the Polaroid Shaker Die-namics. I trimmed off some of this piece to make it look like a square frame.

I then blended some Distress Oxide Inks (Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose)onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Smooth White Card Stock. I started with my darkest color at the top of my card and blended toward the bottom with my lightest. Next, I splattered some diluted white and pink paints for added interest. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment and adhered my image and frame to the front of the card with liquid adhesive.

I made my second card very similar to the first except that I used Evergreen Bough and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks to color my background. I once again used Copic Markers to color my images.

Copic Color Combos Used:

  • Giraffe Lighter Areas: E40, E41, E42, E43
  • Giraffe Spots: E35, E25, E29
  • Background: G000

Once again, I stamped my sentiment with black ink in the lower center portion of my card and adhered both my image and frame with liquid adhesive toward the center of my card.

    Lovely cards, Rachel. Wonderful color choices and the backgrounds are fabulous. I’m a teensy partial to the giraffe as that is my older daughter’s favorite animal. 😉
